diFfuSed beats - A Long Way Round [NTT069]
diFfuSed beats is a duo comprised of Ish Shehrawat (Delhi) and Konrad Bayer (Munich). They engage with sound as a philosophical and social reverberant and not just as an aesthetic object.
Run time 28:42
Sound is the main element in their works and they use it with an expressionist angle to reflect on the times we live in. diFfuSed beats draw an acoustic portrait of the imagined by means of contemporary electro-acoustic music (field recordings, sampling, sequencing, cut-up etc.).
The works are composed out of field recordings, sounds, noise along with digital and analog synthesis.
It is by re-arranging, re-contextualizing and re-interpreting the sonic material an acoustic topography of the places and the hidden spaces that constitute the abstract experience emerges.
'A long way round' is their first EP which follows up the release of their first album called 'incidents and recollections' on Sound Reasons.
